Aspiration Training works with hundreds of employers across Worcestershire delivering apprenticeships and Distance Learning courses. As part of National Apprenticeship Week 2020, we were in touch with Worcester City MP, Robin Walker who is a keen supporter of apprenticeships.

Aspiration Training arranged a visit with one of our childcare employers, who we have been working with for the past 9 years, Little Treasures Day Nursery. Nursery Manager Verena Clark is also a huge believer in apprenticeships, and explained to us that half her current employees had come through a childcare apprenticeship and it really has a hugely positive impact on their business.

Verena Clark said:

We have been working with Aspiration Training for over 9 years now and it really suits us how flexible the delivery model is.  We have employees on both the Level 2 and Level 3 and have seen many of our team progress from a level 2 apprenticeship. We also use the Aspiration Training recruitment team to help us bring in new apprentices.

Although Little Treasures is slightly outside of his constituency, Worcester City MP, Robin Walker took time out of his busy schedule on Friday 7 Feb to come and talk to the Little Treasures team about their experiences of doing apprenticeships. The team were able to talk about the benefits they have seen and how their careers are progressing due to doing their childcare apprenticeships.

Speaking to the apprentices’ Robin Walker MP said:

It is increasingly important to see what a considerable difference apprenticeships are making to young people’s lives. I am encouraged to see how the apprenticeship sector has broadened out to more and more sectors. Apprenticeships represent a real way for people to work their way up the career ladder and focus on long-term qualifications. Politically, we want to see more people getting into apprenticeships, but equally we need to see the quality of provision and education. The new standards are supporting in delivering this quality.

Aspiration Training has been shortlisted as Education and Childcare apprenticeship provider of the year at the FE Week and AELP National Apprenticeship Awards 2020. The winners will be announced in March at an awards ceremony in Birmingham.
